"DON’ T LOOK DOWN"
 
SHE is a director of dog food commercials who’ s just been recruited to finish a four-day movie shoot. But as soon as Lucy Armstrong arrives on set, she discovers that the staff is in chaos, the make-up artist is suicidal, and the stunt director just happens to be her ex-husband. That, and the temperamental lead actor has just acquired as an advisor a Green Beret who has the aggravating habit of always being right.
 
HE thought that hiring on as a military consultant for a movie star was a to-die-for deal: easy work, easy money, easier starlets. But his first day on the job, Captain J.T. Wilder ends up babysitting a bumbling comedian, dodging low-flying helicopters, and trying to find out who’ s taking “ shooting a movie” much too literally.

Reviews

A one-eyed alligator and a pre-Columbian collection of jade phallic symbols figure into this nutty swampland romp from Crusie (Faking It, etc.) and Mayer (Operation Dragon-Sim, etc.). Lucy Armstrong takes a break from doing dog food commercials to take over a full-length feature shoot in the Savannah River swamps, where she finds half the crew is missing, her ex-husband in charge of stunts and a nonsensical script. Meanwhile, Green Beret J.T. Wilder, stunt double to the lead actor who secretly works for the CIA, thought this gig would be easy money, but he soon finds himself embroiled in a money laundering scheme while trying to catch an arms dealer for the Russian mob, tracking a spy through the muck and resisting his growing desire for a woman who looks like Wonder Woman-Armstrong, natch. Plenty of big guns, helicopters, clich?d gender dynamics and light repartee follow-and it's all in good fun. Readers will be happy to get a bit damp. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Noted romance/chick-lit author Crusie (Bet Me) and adventure author Mayer (Z: A Dave Reilly Novel) team up with mixed results in this not-really-a-romance, not-really-a-thriller offering. Sensible film director Lucy is recruited to finish up a movie shoot and encounters hard-living Green Beret J.T. Wilder. The one thing they have in common is that neither of them really wants to be there. Lucy is miserable dealing with her ex-husband, the stunt coordinator for the film, and J.T., who has been hired as an advisor, ends up baby-sitting a wannabe action star. The whole production is shrouded in mystery, right down to its sources of financing (turns out it's a money-laundering scheme for a terrorism supporter). Romantic intrigue among cast members, bumbling CIA agents, a swamp sniper, and Lucy's family problems round out a detailed and often overly busy plot. While the writing is seamless, fans of Crusie will miss her usually snappy style and steamy love scenes. Still, her name alone is bound to generate demand. For most public libraries.

Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer have teamed up to write a fast paced romantic adventure about a producer called in to shoot a rom-com but who'd rather be working with dogs, a hard faced green-beret acting as stunt double who'd rather be anywhere but here, a cute kid with a wonder woman fixation and a one-eyed alligator looking for lunch. Not to mention the ghost in the swamp, the star crossed lovers who happen to be the stars of the movie (and not that in love), and the plot to use the movie set to steal some pre-columbian porn. A fast paced, fun adventure with good laughs and a great romance.
